this jackass, among others
Yo, couple points here! One, if you’ve got issues with anything I draw then please, please tell me directly instead of leaving me to find out in the tag. Seriously, if I’m fucking up it’s because I haven’t realised I’m fucking up, so people really need to tell me or I won’t correct it.
Two, this is less “me being a jackass and drawing a canonically Japanese character as white” and more “me not being particularly good at portraying Japanese features in my art”. Which, yes, is absolutely an issue and something I need to fix. I’m working on it.
Please keep in mind: I’m neuroatypical and I have a lot of difficulty dealing with facial features, especially things like what makes somebody read as one race or another. I’m very bad at finding the nonterrible middle ground between white features and gross racist caricatures.
(The nose is probably a big part of why he looks so white, but on the other hand it was important to me to keep that because that beaky profile is such a mark of the character in my mind. I’ll figure out how to make it work eventually, probably.)
Yes. I know.
It’s been a couple years since I used my brush pen, but I think I’m getting the hang of it. Inking with it is so intimidating, but the lines end up so pretty.#hatoful boyfriend #holiday star #nishikikouji tohri #tohri nishikikouji #traditional art #fanart
